How to do this?  They are annoying and unnecessary, most times I will have already seen the shout before I see the notification, since the two things are on the same page.. i mean why would I click on the little red circle if it says "1" for example, when I can just flick my eyes down and see the new shout its talking about lol am I making sense? The alert is only needed for pm, in my experience.  How do I turn it off for public shouts? Thank you

Notifications aren't just for your shoutbox. You'll also be notified if another user replies to a shout you left on another profile, or an artist/ track/ album page. They'll also be useful in the future when we see groups and forums return. 

But I agree that it's a little annoying having to navigate to the notifications page every time someone leaves a shout on my profile. A simple "dismiss" option would be useful to quickly remove current notifications.

They took months to finally reinstate this, of course it's going to be half-assed :)

The only thing that bugs me is that I'm not able to toggle them and delete them like I can do that with my Notes. I find that stupid.

Yeah, on the old website, simply visiting our page was enough to make the "(1)" (new shout notification sign) go away. This is ridiculous.
